When I was in my early 20’s, my father told me that the best way to find what I was looking for was to write down all of the qualities I wanted in a partner. I still remember a few, because they’re qualities I continue to look for — creative, gets along with their family, down to earth, ambitious, has a “career” and not just a “job” (a very important distinction for a career-oriented gal like myself).
I ripped a page out of one of the many Moleskins I hoarded at the beginning of my journalism career and made two columns of qualities.
How cool and mature was it that we were talking about this? But, of course, the same things that happened with every other man I’ve dated would happen with these men, too.
Wasn’t it great that we were starting this partnership out on such an honest note? We’d have a few dates, share a few text messages, and eventually the thing would fizzle out completely. ” my mother would ask every time I told her about another guy who ghosted.

But there's a huge difference between dating a man-child and dating a scrub.In addition, if you buy her a fancy schmancy dinner at some ritzy place, she won't be able to turn down your request for a 0 "loan" until you can "get to the cash machine." Good investment. Girls do this stare at the phone thing, makes them all anticipatory. Call her in a couple of days or if you get horny again.Also, after sex, just roll over and go to sleep, even if she hasn't had an orgasm yet.You think they're giving the middle finger to societal norms because they march to the beat of their own drum.You assume that they're a free bird and that their immaturity is really them just having a good time.
First, if you're not familiar with the book The Rules here is a summary of "The Rules" in the book, which you need to know to understand the satire.
